Comprehensive overview of human rights and education

09.12.2011
German Education Server and “Education Worldwide“ present an up-to-date dossier

An up-to-date dossier of the German Education Server and its partner ”Education Worldwide” delivers manifold information on the human right to education as well as human rights issues in education: On December 10, 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was published.

Subject to a co-operation between the German Education Server and “Education Worldwide”, this dossier is offered in German and English. The German Education Server is the central gateway to education information on the Internet. This joint service of the federal government and the Länder states is coordinated at the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF).

“Education worldwide”, a gateway to educational information from abroad, is also managed by the DIPF; this service is part of the association of portals hosted by the German Education Server.

The dossier focuses on the human right to basic education, particularly in times of crisis, and renders international sources such as the brochure “UNESCO and education. Everyone has the right to education“ accessible.

Moreover, the dossier links to manifold information offerings in the field of integrating human rights into education and learning. For instance, this includes a teacher compendium by “Human Rights Education Associates“, a non-governmental organization that acts as a network in human rights education.

The DIPF is a member of the Leibniz Association, which currently counts 87 research institutes and science infrastructure institutions, as well as two associated members. Research in the Leibniz Association covers a broad scope, reaching from the natural sciences, engineering and environmental sciences to economics-, social and space science and the humanities. Leibniz institutes strategically and thematically work on issues that are relevant to society as a whole. Hence, Leibniz institutes are jointly funded by the federal government and the Länder states.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
